Silman Resiliency Forum: How can we move past roadblocks to building resiliency?

Competing Timelines
Tuesday, November 10th, 12:30PM

Despite an increasing urgency in preparing for flood events and coastal disasters, increases of public awareness and public consensus have not kept pace. Built environment projects can span years of from concept to completion, only compounding the immediate need to accelerate design and construction for a more resilient future while pushing public consensus forward. This program will facilitate a dialogue between policy makers and designers on the front lines of building resilient coastal communities. While primarily focusing on obstacles such as time and politics, they will also discuss non-technical hurdles they have encountered in their respective fields.
